Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES -

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Don­ald Trump ig­nored the stun­ning ques­tion at a White House ap­pear­ance on Fri­day — "Mr. Pres­i­dent, are you a racist?" — but there's no get­ting around that more peo­ple in the me­dia are will­ing to use that la­bel.

The pres­i­dent's ref­er­ence to African "shit­hole" coun­tries and re­ported re­sis­tance to more im­mi­gra­tion from Haiti felt like a tip­ping point in the num­ber of peo­ple will­ing to call Trump a racist, rather than say his words or ac­tions ex­hib­ited racism.
